Gia Martin, 39 of Kenosha, was reported missing on January 26, 2021. This past Sunday, she was found dead. Kenosha Police would not comment, but her boyfriend, Roderick L. Smith was arrested later that same day. He has a long history of domestic violence and other violent crime arrests. He was booked on a probation/parole hold. This is commonly done to give prosecutors more time to file charges. In this case, Kenosha DA Mike Graveley has much of his staff working on new motions for Kyle Rittenhouse so he might need the extra time. If Martin is charged for any involvement in his death, we will let you know.
Kenosha Man Who Hanged Himself Passes Away
A Kenosha man was found unresponsive on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 in his Kenosha County Jail cell. He was reported to have hanged himself with a bed sheet. Timothy has recently passed away. His family takes comfort in knowing that his donated organs will bring life to others. Kenosha Sheriff David Beth didn’t return our request for comment. This happened under Beth’s watch in 2009 and again in 2016. The Sheriff didn’t seemingly make any policy changes to prevent this newest suicide. We also reached out to the Racine County Sheriff who is handling the investigation.
